DSC040401 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
4 large eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 sticks salted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
Half of one 13-ounce jar Nutella
1. Preheat the oven to 325°. Lightly grease and flour a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. In a bowl, sift flour and baking powder.
2. In a separate large bowl, using a handheld mixer, beat the butter with the sugar at medium-high speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. With the mixer at medium-low speed, gradually beat in the eggs and vanilla until fully mixed. Add in the flour mixture gradually, beating at low speed between additions until mixed well. Continue to beat for 30 seconds longer.
3. Open the jar of Nutella and microwave for 30 seconds to get it spreadable/smooth. Stir with butter knife. If still too thick, microwave again for another 10 seconds. Set aside
4. Spread one-half of the batter in the prepared pan, then spread some of the Nutella, (about 3 to 4 ounces, or 1/ 4 of a jar) on top of batter. Repeat with the rest of the batter and then top with another 1/ 4 of a jar of Nutella and then gently swirl with a butter knife the Nutella into the batter. Do not overmix.
5. Bake the cake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Invert the cake onto a wire rack, turn it right side up and let cool completely, about 2 hours. Cut the cake into slices and serve (coffee ice cream goes very well with it).
6. ENJOY – You tella, me tella, it’s wonderful Nutella!

  1. Delores, I was busy becoming a grandma again!
    But I will add to this comment.
    I asked you for this recipe after you served this cake at a neighborhood get together. I noticed that the recipe called for a full jar of Nutella. I decided it was too much before I even tried the recipe, so I cut the ingredient of a jar of Nutella in half and it is just enough. This recipe has been very popular since I started baking it. I made it for a family member, Valerie, when we were invited to dinner. She brought the leftovers to her job. Since then she got a few requests for the recipe. A footnote to Val, thanks for getting me another jar of Nutella, will have to remember to bake you another cake!

  2. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker
    who had been doing a little research on this. And he in fact bought me dinner simply because
    I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this….
    Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this topic here on your internet site.
